She kept me company for about 3 hours as I was weeding toda. As close as 2 ft away.

Its our Robin that is a companion bird here. The male Blackbirds are quite aggressively territorial to us and each other.

I normally have robins too, but they stayed in the back garden on the feeders according to my OH.

They will be collecting nesting material soon if they aren't already. We still have the blackbird, that came into the kitchen onto the worktop, visiting. She is still quite tame. I wonder how long they live. She used to nest in the clematis by the kitchen window. It was such a shame we had to cut it down when they installed the gas boiler vent. The new clematis are growing well but not bushy enough yet.

I think about 4-5 years. Homebird. There are nests in the beech hedge and in the hawthorn hedge.
